Mama 2 visited us many times in Bluefield, WVa as her son Gary Jakes is our Pastor. We loved her and enjoyed so much when she visited. Heaven gained a precious angel when he called her home. We will always hold our memories with her as very special times in our lives as she touched us with her testimony .

Mama II was a wonderful, precious and Godly lady that I had the blessing and privilege to meet.
She came to Bluefield, West Virginia to visit with her son, Gary Jakes Sr., who is my Pastor.
I felt like I had known her all of my life. She was so kind and loving and I know that the angels are rejoicing and she is probably sitting at Jesus feet now.
